Goodness I have a million things I could do but I just sat and glimpsed back through at my Timeline Album Posts HERE from WAY back. I’m rarely on FB anymore because I don’t have a personal account and business pages have changed so much. Amazing how years fly by!
After 8 years of photographing almost every kind of scenario, seeing all sorts of behind the scenes, experiencing the good and the bad in life. It’s pretty neat to not only watch my own children grow during my career, but to also witness the love of others, child birth, families, some growing and some losing a few over the years.
Looking through the images and at the faces and families I have photographed, some stay and some go… but ALL of them have no idea the “small-BIG” impact they have had in my life whether it be good or bad. It has molded me into who I am today!
I had a new young college Photographer shadow me on a wedding this past weekend. As I was speaking to her about certain things, it also opened my eyes. Although I still feel like I just graduated High School, I’m really becoming one of the older ones in the young Photography Industry. However, without all of my experiences I would not be where I am at in my businesses.
I encourage everyone… it’s okay to make mistakes. You develop, grow and learn from them. So if you are a new photographer or taking on something new in life… remember making mistakes is okay. Keep going, don’t let critics get to you. Hold your head high, try and stay away from comparison, stay optimistic, keep learning, silence and tough skin will come in handy. Good people still exist & dreams do come true. Never give up! “I’ve learned so much from my mistakes, I’m thinking of making a few more” -unknown Originally posted HERE xoxo
P.S. I hate writing… so I know there are tons of mistakes here too
